IN FSA Office Busy First Day Reopens, Different Situation Friday

January 21, 2019 01:54 PM

Several Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices are closed around the country today because of the national holiday but many are scheduled to reopen tomorrow.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is reopening several of the offices last week to try and help farmers during the partial government shutdown.

AgDay national reporter Betsy Jibben traveled to Northeast Indiana to visit an FSA office Friday. She was told the office was busy Thursday. Friday was a different story.

  Well the office I went to was similar to a ghost town on Thursday. Myself and two others were in there only wanting to report bushels for our MFP payment. However we couldn’t do that do to what the office was limited in doing. If you are open be there full staffed and able to do ANYTHING you would normally do.

  The few FSA offices were reopened so the government could collect payments from farmers that had loan payments due. No other business could be conducted, period!!! So in reality they wanted to be open to collect our money, but we as farmers could not take out any new loans or file any paperwork to collect any payments from the federal government that we had coming to us under the farm program.
